Spy Fashion: what’s your frame?

Today, July 8, we are hosting a Wig in the Window Spy Workshop at Babesta Cribz! Kristen Kittscher will teach a group of young boys and girls how to create the best spy story! Inspired by this event, we wondered, “What would a great spy outfit be?” Using all our resources here at Babesta, we tracked down a few clothes and accessories that will be great for our adorable Spies!

Great for both boys and girls, these spy outfits will help our spies look stylish while tracking down who ate the last cookie ! The adorable tees remind us of spies, while the fedoras really compliment the outfit. These cute Sons and Daughters Sunglasses really complete the outfit, and the spy kit and notebook can help our little spies look for and write down clues!

Definitely read A Wig in the Window by Kristen Kittscher to enter the spy adventure of Sophie Young and Grace Yang! This is a must read filled with funny dialogues and intense spy action! They must discover what really went down in Dr. Agford’s house that night they discovered a bloody scene in her kitchen! (Dr. Agford was actually making her famous pickled beets!) It will be great for children, and reading this book with this outfit can maybe trigger awesome spy activities!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for pictures of today’s events!

Rosie’s Theater Kids Rocked the Stage at Passing it On

So last night I went to the Passing it On event, the annual show by Rosie’s Theater Kids. I am so blown away by these folks–making such a huge difference in the lives of kids in the city. Even more blown away by the kids themselves–amazing. One group sang “You Gotta Have Heart” with Rosie herself, and other amazing numbers were choreographed and directed by people like BD Wong (“M. Butterfly/Law & Order SVU”) and John Tartaglia (Avenue Q).

It was a wonderful event by an organization that addresses a big problem:  anyone with a kid in the public school system knows, when money’s tight, the Arts are always the first in line to be cut. Enter this organization which provides free regular classes in performing  to some of the most in-need public schools and then offer after school and summer programs to kids who audition and get chosen. Participation is based on passion and need over talent. Not only giving access to a talented panel of teachers and mentors, the organization helps them academically with tutoring programs and helps to get them into performing arts high schools as well.

Thanks for the show. Inspiring! Big Shoutout from your pals at Babesta! Pass it on…

New Office for Babesta

We’re pretty excited at Babesta as we are starting to settle into our new office! There are desks, new flor tiles, orange and grey paper storage/filing bins and even an architectural archway that has been painted underneath with totally groovy dry-erase paint. It’s still a bit of a work in progress but we’re nearly there! A tiny peek: More pictures coming soon!

Celebrating Life on the Fly at Babesta & Bugaboo’s “Bee in the City” party!

We’re throwing a bash with our fave stroller brand, Bugaboo, to celebrate living life on the fly (and living a fly life)!  We’re debuting the latest installment of Bubaboo’s video series, this time detailing the urban adventure of stylist and blogger Latonya Staubs, her family and her Bugaboo Bee. Latonya will share some of her fave go-tos in the city, DJ Neil will spin some rad tunes, we’ll all eat some yummy cupcakes and enjoy. Cheers to city moms!!

We are big fans of the Bee, as it happens, as Babesta is curated for a city child, so it only make sense that a light weight, agile, easy to fold and high quality (& super stylish) stroller would be the guest of honor.

We’ll even be doing some stroller cleaning to those who pre-sign up for it (make an appointment ahead of time by calling 646 290 5508).

The deets: Come to Babesta Cribz, 56 Warren Street, March 6, from 1:00-3:00pm.

Also (as if this wasn’t enough) a Bugaboo Bee & accessory will be raffled off!!!!
